East of England
Welcome to the East of England Branch. Click here to view committee details.
Atul Vadher, the new East of England Branch Chair, has worked within the Credit industry for over 30 Years, specialising in the full Order to Cash cycle. Please click here for a short biography.
We decided some years ago that the old branch system of meetings needed a spring clean. Members said that they were busy, they didn’t want old style Branch meetings, they didn’t always have the time to travel from one end of the county to another for branch evening meetings, but instead they would like to join in with branch activity – and having a Branch section on the CICM website like this one, along with our Branch LinkedIn website, will create the branch feel without the travelling and the hassle! This is even more important now that we have grown our geographic boundaries.
Consequently we have abandoned routine Branch meetings and have instead held large free to attend conferences, with industry leading speakers, such as our successful Fraud, Law and Insolvency Conferences, Improving Credit Management in the Workplace, and our recent Fraud, Risk and Cybercrime Conference. Our most recent conferences have all been held, at the wishes of our members and with the full support of CICM London Branch, during the day in central London because many of our Branch members work in central London. We have managed to keep these conferences entirely free of charge by obtaining support and sponsorship from leading companies and CICM corporate partners.
So make sure you add this part of the website, along with the CICM East of England LinkedIn website, to your favourites and send through to the Branch Secretary, any ideas so this site can be tailored to the needs of the membership. Members wishing to join the Committee are most welcome.
We look forward to working with you and developing this, and our LinkedIn websites, in order to make certain that CICM members located in Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk, and parts of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, and Northamptonshire have representation and a say in how we move forward.
